Former Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal (8-1 MMA, 3-1 SF) is back on a regular schedule.

After an on-again, off-again stretch of activity courtesy of a knee injury, Lawal is expected to make his second appearance since returning from his layoff when he fights at "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine."

In order to determine his place in the food chain when SF finally folds.

Feijao or Mike Kyle? Seriously is this all that's left of their division?

From what I've read in the past few days a deal between Zuffa and showtime is complete and Strikeforce is atleast sticking around for a couple more years.

While they won't call it that officially it will operate as a feeder league for the UFC, and shortly after the announcement you will see lower end UFC fighters begin migrating to Strikeforce.

Apparently Showtime keeps the broadcast rights but gets them at a reduced rate based on the top end talent leaving for bigger paydays in the UFC.

That's what I wanted from the beginning.
